This tasty soup is full of flavor and healthy ingredients, and will warm you up on a cool autumn night.
In a heavy large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine onions, celery, margarine and curry powder. Cover and cook over low heat until vegetables are tender (10 to 15 minutes), stirring often. Add cubed squash, chopped apples and liquid (water, stock or broth) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until squash and apples are cooked thoroughly. Strain liquid and set aside. Puree the apple-squash mixture with one cup of the strained liquid. Add cider and remaining liquid to reach desired consistency. Garnish with grated apple, yogurt or low-fat sour cream.
